Royal Icing, powdered food colors mixed with vodka, artists brushes, gumpaste, cutter, gumpaste mold and rolling pin. Plus an extruder for the vines.
What was your inspiration?
My inspiration was the Craftsy Course - giving me the confidence to try this method. Reading a book of instructions wouldn't have been enough, watching Colette do it firsthand was pure inpiration.
What are you most proud of?
So proud of the reaction this cake garnered at a recent wedding show.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If intimidated, roll out a square of fondant and practice on it before taking on a real cake. You will be amazed at how silly your fear was and how easily this went together.
